Day 3 Physical activity & exercise

    Hi all, the question to ponder for day 3 was in regards to exercise and physical activity. I'm not sure whether it was suggesting that physical activity should be something to consider. I have always believed the physical activity was a very good thing - motion is lotion. It is what I have taught now for the best part of thirty years. But my current condition is that I have cartilage wear in both my knees and this has severely curtailed my activity. I currently do nothing. I am very angry, frustrated, and upset about why this has happened to me. I've spent all my years in the pursuit of fitness thinking it was the right thing to do; don't smoke, don't do drugs, I eat well, and drink only occasionally; yet here I am essentially broken and staring down the barrel of arthritis and disability. Just seems so unfair. But I know that life isn't fair either. As for physical activity. I suppose I will have to, one day, get back to doing something in time. Trying to keep perspective. jk

    Hi, JayKay. You're right about physical activity... it's great for the body and the morale. I am 85 and have to be careful not to fall, but I do some exercise. I do some easy exercises for seniors on Youtube. They are easy and take only 10 or 20 minutes, some sitting and some standing. I suggest you take a look at them and give them a try. I watch them on my computer monitor but if have a tv that gets Youtube you can watch them there.

    Keep believing your pains are from TMS, your emotions. The SEProgram will help you a lot with them.
